      Hi Shyko,

      Welcome to the hand evaluations :)

      I can quickly see there is no mistake in the way you posted this hand so please keep posting like this

      About your hand:
      Preflop & Flop is played accordingly as we should be playing the MSS here.

      Now the Turn we suddenly have Toppair, any particular reason you remember why you checked here? I would continue valuebetting the Turn

      As played you have to check/fold the River as there are just too many hands that have you beat and not a lot of hands that would overbetshove as a bluff

      Best regards,
      Gerv
